Meta has confirmed with the State of Illinois that effective June 30, 2017, the requirement for non-bank ATM owners to register terminals with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Division of Banking has been repealed.

If you remember, Meta negotiated with the State of IL to provide quarterly reporting to the state of every Meta-deployed terminal in the State of Illinois. Meta’s reporting was in lieu of each ISO submitting terminal registrations to the state. Beginning with 2Q 2017, Meta has been advised by the State this reporting is no longer required.

Updates to Illinois H.B. 1783 do require each terminal deployed in the State of Illinois to display a sticker on the terminal containing the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation telephone number. That number is 217-785-2900.

Meta suggests ISOs with terminals deployed in the State of Illinois have a small sticker created with the Department phone number that is affixed to the terminal near the network-required Operational Problems or Suspicious Activity and network logos signage.
